Experience the Driver Refresher Programme:

As part of Highways England's commitment to Health and Safety, it has developed a Driver Refresher Programme delivered through an eLearning and simulator session. By using an innovative simulator approach we are ensuring that Traffic Officers are competent in both knowledge and skill to safely and consistently carry out their role on the road. Previews will be given to groups of three on stand G04. Please visit the stand to book a place.

Session Focus: The number one problem facing road infrastructure over the next decade

This interactive session will demonstrate the immersive learning tools used in the Roads Academy programmes. This is a joint initiative from Highways England and the roads industry. It offers membership, masterclasses and leadership development programmes.

LEGO SERIOUS PLAY is a facilitation methodology created by the LEGO Group to foster creative thinking through team building metaphors in answer to the question along with their views and experiences using LEGO bricks. It provides a passionate and practical process for building confidence, commitment and insight, the approach is based on research that suggests hands-on, "minds-on" learning produces a deeper understanding of the world and its possibilities. Participants can come away with the skills to communicate more effectively, engage their imaginations more readily, and approach their work with increased confidence, commitment and insight.
